#selfie this story is unbelievable so if you don’t believe it I totally understand. @codykucich was there so he knows and that’s what really matters.
Cody and I decided we were going to try standing with one foot on the tank, and one foot on the seat and hold our arms out like Leo in titanic. We found a quiet straight stretch and tried it. I found that my helmet limited me from being able to look up while in the crouched position before standing. I took it off. (Dumb). We both proceeded to execute the move with decent extension of our arms and legs. We then decided we needed pictures. We tried it again. I went first. I dumped it. I hit the chip sealed road and my bike shot off the road and kartwheeled to a standing stop. I was knocked cold and don’t remember hitting the ground. My bike was high centered but just fine. Front fender has a new shape but it rides fine. Me and cody together couldn’t get it back on the road. A man drove by in a jeep. He stopped. He single handedly lifted my bike up and get it back on the road. He was a giant in heart and size. Wish I got his name. Now I am a bit bloody and a lot sore but mostly I didn’t learn anything. I will likely try again. I will probably wear a helmet for this kind of shit next time. No hospitals, no cops. Just a brother and a kind stranger.

This is Justin Steik. The First time I ever crashed at Steik’s house was about 5 or so years ago. I think it was when Rebuilt was recording. He was living with his parents at the time. First thing when we got to his house he turned on Peter Pan and poured out a tub of Legos on the floor. Made perfect sense at the time.
